Fluor Corporation and JGC joint venture has been selected as the engineering, procurement and construction contractor for LNG Canada’s proposed export facility in Kitimat, British Columbia.
The award is conditional on a positive final investment decision later this year, Fluor said in a statement on Friday.
The proposed LNG export facility will liquefy surplus Canadian natural gas so that it can be safely exported to help meet global energy demands.
The facility will initially consist of two LNG processing units, each with the capacity to produce at least 6.5 million tons per annum (mtpa) of LNG.
The project includes the option to expand to four trains in the future, Fluor said.
LNG Canada is a joint venture comprised of Shell Canada Energy (50 percent), a unit of Royal Dutch Shell and affiliates of PetroChina (20 percent), Korea Gas Corporation (15 percent) and Mitsubishi Corporation (15 percent).
